You can access the archives of 12 Massachusetts newspapers (including the T&G, Boston Herald, and Boston Globe) if you have a Worcester Public Library card.
The Massachusetts Newsstand can be accessed by selecting the Resources > Online Databases option from the top menu of the Worcester Public Library website. Then click on Newspapers and select the Massachusetts Newsstand. All you need to log in is your library card number — you don’t need an additional PIN.
I like to expand the More Search Options tab when I use the basic search — you can limit your results to one publication (like Telegram & Gazette). I also usually look for terms in the Citation and document text, which isn’t the default option, but that’s the one that will search the whole article text. You can do date ranges as well.
The Telegram archives are available on this website from 1989 to the present. They don’t include photos, but I’ve found this to be one of the most convenient services the library offers. (And I don’t have to be in the library to take advantage of it.)
